Tanzania to construct international fishing port, saysminister
THE government has said that it is on the final stages to commence the construction of an international fishing port, which among others, will bolster deep sea fishing for the country’s development.

The deputy minister for Livestock and Fisheries, Abdallah Ulega​
The deputy minister for Livestock and Fisheries, Abdallah Ulega unveiled this week when he attended the first ever ‘Sustainable Blue Conference’ in Nairobi, Kenya.

Sustainable Blue Economy is a marine-based economy that provides social and economic benefits for current and future generations, restores, protects and maintains the diversity, productivity and resilience of marine ecosystems, and is based on clean technologies, renewable energy, and circular material flows.

According to him, the potential of fisheries sector has yet to be effectively utilised to bring positive impacts in the country.
“Under the plans, more fishing ships will be purchased to make it easier for deep sea fishing in the country and thus enable it compete internationally,” he said.

He also said that the construction of the port will also attract fishing ships from various countries to dock in the country thus creating employment opportunities to locals through fish processing factories that will be established.
“Investing in processing industries and storage facilities are therefore major opportunities to bolster revenues in the fisheries sector.”

He noted: “For a country’s sustainable economy, protection of ocean, rivers and lakes, environment remains critical…resources found in should also be protected. This is why Tanzania is doing all it can to ensure that resources are protected for sustainable development and the future generations.”

Ulega further said that Tanzania had great potentials for marine fisheries due to its rich marine natural resources as there is a readily available market for fish, given the large quantities of fish imported from abroad.

He added that the Sustainable Blue Economy Conference which brought participants from around the world was aimed among others things to harnesses the potential of oceans, seas, lakes and rivers to improve the lives of all, particularly people in developing states, women, youth and indigenous peoples.

Late last year, Ulega said that Tanzania imported at least 2,000 tonnes of mackerel fish from China owing to the decline in fish catches from the Indian Ocean waters.

He was speaking at Kilindoni village in Mafia District, Coast Region at the climax of marking World Fishing Day which was organised by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF).

According to him, available statistics show that fish catches in the country had declined to at least 360,000 tonnes in 2016 compared to 390,000 tonnes in 2012.

Tanzania has been lying about its debt situation. However the truth is out. Tanzania is among the heavily indebted countries in Africa.

UPDATE 1-Equinor set to start talks with Tanzania over LNG project
Nerijus Adomaitis
(Adds details, background)

By Nerijus Adomaitis
OSLO, Dec 4 (Reuters) - Norway’s Equinor is ready to start talks with Tanzania over developing a liquefied natural gas (LNG) project based on a deepwater offshore discovery, the company said on Tuesday.

Tanzanian President John Magufuli has asked his government to proceed with negotiations to set out the commercial and fiscal framework for the LNG project, it added.

“Equinor will now proceed with our partner ExxonMobil with negotiations for a host government agreement,” an Equinor spokesman said in an email to Reuters.

He said it was too early to say how long talks with the government could take and how much the project would cost.

Tanzania said in 2014 that a planned LNG export plant could cost up to $30 billion.

Royal Dutch Shell, which operates deepwater Blocks 1 and 4, adjacent to Equinor’s Block 2 previously sought to develop the LNG project in partnership with Equinor and Exxon Mobil.

Shell said on its website the three blocks had sufficient gas reserves to build an onshore LNG plant, but the company was not immediately available to comment on whether it would join the other two in starting talks.

Shell estimates its two blocks hold about 16 trillion cubic feet (453 billion cubic metres) of recoverable gas, similar to the volumes in Equinor’s Block 2.

Reuters reported in June that Exxon Mobil was seeking to sell its 25 percent stake in Block 2 as it was focusing on an even bigger project in neighbouring Mozambique. (Editing by Gwladys Fouche and Edmund Blair)

The Citizen (Dar es Salaam)
Tanzania: Chinese Firm Wins U.S.$160m Tender for Phase 2 of BRT

By Hellen Nachilongo
Dar es Salaam — China Civil Engineering and Construction Corporation has been awarded a tender to construct a $160 million second phase Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project.

Construction of the 20.3km road would include two flyovers of 24m width and length of 150m each, 29 bus terminals, a control centre and a garage.

The project is expected to start this month and will be completed in 36 months.

Dar es Salaam Rapid Transit Agency public relations manager William Gatambi told The Citizen recently the project would start after finalising the compensation process to residents along Kilwa Road.
"We have so far paid 56 out of 105 people who are supposed to be compensated, "he said.

He said those that were yet to be paid were still opening their bank accounts so that the money could be deposited in their accounts. Others were completing some legal procedures.

According to him, so far there are no objections. People have been signing the affidavit forms for them to be paid so that they evacuate.

Reports show that African Development Bank agreed to issue $141 million for the project and the remaining funds will come from the government. With the growing population of Dar es Salaam, the government began to draw up plans for a rapid transit system in 2003. The government predicted the city population to grow to over 5 million by 2015 and invited the Japan International Cooperation Agency to design a master plan for transport in the city in June 2008.

A bus rapid transit and a metro transit system were proposed but the metro system was not approved due to the high construction and operational costs involved.

The project was placed under the Prime Minister's office and a Dar Rapid Transit Agency (DART) was created through a government notice on 25 May 2007.[9] A 130 km bus rapid transit was planned to cover over 90% of the city's population and the project was split into six phases due to the large investment required.[10] The initial project cost was financed by the world bank and the bank provided $180 million for the construction of the first phase.
